Fencing & Walls

A permit is required for construction, alteration, repair or installation of any fence or wall. A fence or wall repair is defined as the repair or maintenance of 25% or more of the total linear feet of the fence or wall. Before beginning your project please review our City Fence & Wall Guidelines (PDF), and complete and submit the Fence & Wall Permit Application (PDF).

The City is not responsible if your fence is not on the exact property line. City staff strongly recommends that all residents planning or placing a fence on their property consult a recent survey of the property before beginning.

Permit Fees
The cost of a fence or wall permit is $50 and is collected by the City's Planning and Development Department at issuance of the permit.
